I know New Year’s Day was almost a week ago but I can’t kick my mochi fix! So instead of the regular chi chi dango mochi, I think I’m going to make a batch of butter mochi.
(Mochi is a Japanese rice cake. In the traditional way, it’s pounded until it gets really sticky. The other way to make it is using mochiko flour. Usually, eating plain mochi is for New Years. For everyday sweets, occasions, and potlucks, people make sweet mochi.)
